The epic made simple. The miracle in the mundane.
One day, while browsing an antique store in Helena, Montana, photographer Tyler Knott Gregson stumbled upon a vintage Remington typewriter for sale. Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything.
He fell in love.
Three years and almost 1,000 poems later, Tyler is now known as the creator of the Typewriter Series: a striking collection of poems typed onto found scraps of paper or created via blackout method. Chasers of the Light features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded pieces of work - poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.

I have been following Tyler Knott on Instagram for a while now and finally got around to buying this audiobook. I am not disappointed, his work is truly amazing, and his voice adds so much depth to the poetry.
Tyler writes magnificently and there's nothing like listening to the voice of any author give life to his own words, as he intended them when writing. This is a specifically passionate author and book. A must read for the soul.
I think it should have been done by someone with more narration experience. The poems were hit or miss.
Yes. Already on my 4th time listening.
I enjoyed the entire experience of love without boundaries or limits. His love is above the physical world..
Reading a book that an author reads himself is what makes this book even more heartfelt and special.
The moment he first described seeing the typewriter and being so moved by it.
As a poet working on my first real love. I have published a short children's story but poetry is my love and behind disabled with not much time left at 43. Finishing my book is one of the things I get up for every morning. That you for lighting a fire in my soul again..
I would recommend this audiobook. The authors voice is so expressive, it allows you to feel more of a connection with the poems.
The poems aligned to tell a story of love that is felt deeply and passionately. The words danced together so perfectly.
one of the poets I adore most, tyler knott gregson has a beautiful mind and an impeccable way with words. this is one of my favorite reads and his voice is nirvana with the words he has written. all in all an amazing and breathtaking read. I couldn't be happier.
